You know, while I was traveling through Arizona, I was looking for these cacti everywhere and I never saw them. I was so sad that I didn't see them. Glad you got a chance to find one. Great shot.

Are you sure you were in Arizona? I mean the place is lousy with these cacti, you can't swing a monkey without hitting one.

Perhaps you took a wrong turn like the boys in Dumb and Dumber? They thought they were in Colorado when they were actually in a very flat state. They were expecting a "rocky mountain high" but it just wasn't there, prompting the great line "That John Denver is full of shit".

Seriously though you must have been in Northern AZ, apparently there is a line that once you cross, you will no longer see any saguaro, or whatever you call the damn things.

Unless the Grand Canyon moved, I'm pretty sure I was there. Lol.

I think of Arizona & I just think of those damn cacti and I didn't see one! Momma was NOT happy! lol. I'm super jealous.

Yeah the saguaro don't make it up to the GC. At least from what I understand.
